Must-read ; Good introduction to comic reading.
Reviewed in India on 12 January 2017
Having read Tintin books as a kid, I wanted to introduce the comic series to my kids. This was my first Tintin purchase for my kids. Although, I would have preferred to start with the first book, it is just a matter of time for kids to get used to the Tintin characters.
The book is about Tintin's adventures when he travels to middle-east & India. Hegre's unique storytelling through this famous comic series makes you and the kids glued to his books. This one book has developed so much interest for my kids that they now want to read all the series.
This book "Cigars of Pharoah" continues into the next book in the series called "The Blue Lotus". So I guess, that would be my next buy.
On a separate note, I wasn't impressed with the comic series that comes as a set of three books and different volumes. I would strongly encourage to purchase these large paperback versions as it is hard to read the text in those volumes.
